On a man it wold be good, but I would soften it just a bit (for a woman portrait)...

Sounds like a good idea. How would you do that?

Maybe reduce the contrast and/or saturation somewhat. Possibly use a softening filter, if your photo editor has something along those lines.
I'm not sure I would change it much at all, though, as her skin has excellent tones, and the bold look seems to suit her smile.

jessik would like that! Save her hours of applying makeup! Is Topaz 3 part of Lightroom? I'm limited to Photoshop 9.

Topaz Labs make several plug-ins that work well with Photoshop Elements, and I'm sure with Photoshop 9. Not sure about Lightroom. Here's a link to their website. Lots of stuff to look at. I have Adjust, Clarity, and Detail 3. Bought all three as part of a promo through Corel. They are fun to play with, and really can really enhance your pictures.

In Photoshop I would do a Gaussian blur on a separate layer masking out everything but her face, and then reduce the opacity of this layer against the main background of the original picture

But a quicker way would be: http://www.portraitprofessional.com/...ymSxoCXM7w_wcB
